In this guide, I will teach you the basics of how to make a profit on illegal and legal items.

Legal Items

Legal items include houses, cars, businesses, etc.

So you want to buy a car from someone who's asking for too much on their end. First off, don't sound too anxious, because right when the seller notices that you REALLY want their item,they'll up the price. Keep calm and cool, find the seller's weakness. If the seller REALLY needs to sell the item, then you'll be able to get a deal. If the seller is being stubborn about his price, try to convince him that you can buy the same car for a lower price that is also less used. A silver tongue will be required to successfully convince the person you are bartering with.

Illegal Items

Illegal items include firearms, drugs, materials, etc.

First off, make sure that you NEVER go to a deal by yourself. Always have someone watching out for you. This will prevent you from getting robbed/kidnapped/stingered. The easiest way to know a stinger operation, is to first off, keep a distance from the deal location. Scout out your buyer/seller, make sure he looks legit. If you see someone dressed in really nice clothing, then they'll probably be an FBI agent. Be sure to do the deal in a public place, such as the pizza stack. With such a large amount of people around, it'd be non-rp for your buyer/seller to whip out a gun and kidnap you. Same as legal items, don't sound like you need the item, even if you really do. Keep it cool, and play your cards right, and you'll get a decent price. Of course, some people are stuck on a price, and they won't do anything. If they STILL won't give you a better price, then turn around and walk away. Maybe that will get him to break.

I hope you enjoyed this guide, but it is still prone to editing, as it only took me 5-10 minutes to write. Good luck!
